Join us to see the Donation Station live

The annual Fundraising Convention, held by the Chartered Institute of Fundraising, will take place on 3rd and 4th July at the QEII Centre, London .

This year, for the first time ever, the event will be hybrid with both in-person and online tickets available. Which ties in nicely with this year's theme of 'Connection'.

What does Connection mean to us?

The Donation Station works hard to connect charities, fundraisers, corporate partners and supporters through contactless technology.

It's also ideal for building meaningful connections through digital storytelling. By using strong imagery and messaging, the device connects donors to your cause, something that is especially important in today's competitive landscape.

Come and say hello!

Find us on Stand 2 in the Expo, on the Third Floor.

We love meeting fundraisers in-person so come and have a chat with our friendly team about all things contactless fundraising.

We will also be raising funds on behalf of The Salvation Army, so look out for our live Donation Station, and see how well it can work for your cause.



What are we looking forward to?

There are plenty of sessions planned for this year's event.

Here's our list of Digital Transformation and Donor Experience themed insights, we think look fantastic for any fundraising team.
